The Ontario Superior Court denied a request for an injunction to stop Weyerhaeuser from shutting down its Sturgeon Falls mill.
The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union says the ruling has made its members “all the more determined to publicly expose the company’s callous and self-serving behavior.”
In a statement, the union says it “has begun a campaign to focus national attention on what happens when a large American corporation is allowed to exploit the resources of a small Canadian town out of sheer greed.” The union also claims Weyerhaeuser is blocking any attempts to find a buyer for the profitable facility because it doesn’t want the competition.
